This entire album puts me in a different place, allowing me to reflect so much more easily. I find myself listening to this during the very early hours of morning with coffee. This is a must have!
Favorite track: Dark Oak Woods.
In ‘What Wind Whispered to the Trees’ Amini references characters from Dostoevsky's 'The Brothers Karamazov' and 'The Devils’. Conveying a sense of loss and of longing from opening track, the album unravels chapter by chapter holding the listener in a dark, dense and poetic tale, as if translating Dostoevsky into musical form. The raw string melodies, fine tonal auroras and contrasting heavy drones are expanded and deepened by stunning mastering from Lawrence English.
